Monte Cristos

What's not to like about a ham and cheese sandwich on French toast? It's a rich, buttery sandwiches-for-dinner option.
 
Monte Cristo Sandwiches
from marthastewart.com 

Sandwiches
Dijon mustard 
8 slices bread  
Swiss cheese slices 
~1/2 lb ham

Batter:
4 large eggs 
1/2 C milk 
1 t salt  
1/2 t pepper 
1/4 t ground nutmeg   

For pan:
4 T butter 

To serve:
Confectioner's sugar 

Spread mustard on bread. Layer 4 bread slices with Swiss cheese, ham, and cheese again. Place remaining bread slices on top.

In a shallow dish, whisk together dipping batter. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture, turning to coat well.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. When butter is foamy, add the sandwiches, and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes total. Serve immediately, dusted with confectioners' sugar if desired.
